Strand area buildings remind you of New Orleans. Great shops, food, drinks, gifts and the prices are good too. It was enjoyable to take our time walking down one side and back up the other side. People were friendly.

A fun day walking and shopping. It was nice to shop so many stores without it being the same thing over and over again. Just make sure you keep that meter feed or the meter maid will catch you.

It wasn't the most exciting thing we have EVER done, but with the beaches' seaweed infestation - it was a fun experience with a learning element for our 9-year old twins.

Lots of walking around, but some really neat shopping and places to grab a snack or drink in the area. Best in the morning when it is cool in the summer time though.
